Room Reward Types

Note: All room types other than boss rooms can become Afflicted. Afflicted rooms are indicated by a purple border and cause the character to gain an Affliction on entry.

Item Reward Room

When players are offered rewards, they have three options:

  • Recieve #x <item1> now
  • Recieve #x <item2> at end of the Floor (“at end of the next Floor” if on room 8)
  • Recieve #x <item3> on completing the Sanctum

The quantity and/or types of items improve based on the area level of the zone and how long you defer the reward, at the cost of risking the reward entirely if the player fails the run. Item chests have a 5 Aureus fee.

Treasure Reward Room

Contains chests of Aureus; comes in 2 types: Minor Treasure Reward (2 chests) or Major Treasure Reward (5 chests).
